    I would like to send a 60 MB audio attatchment (MP3), but this exceeds the maximum message size allowed for my recipients. What is the best method of getting this size audio clip to someone short of burning it on a CD and mailing it to them?

    If the only way is dividing the audio into 2 or more segments and and sending multiple messages, I will try that route, but I do not think I have software to cut up the clip to smaller segments. The original source is thirty minutes on a cassette tape. I could re-record in smaller segments if that is the only way. Any other ideas?

    you can use winzip or i use izarc http://www.izarc.org/ free
    in tools use
    create a multiple-volume set
    and choose the size - probably 5MB as some email servers are quite small

    OR
    you could simple put it onto a file share , like dropbox, onedrive, googledrive or other file sharing services on the web, and share the file with the other person

    Make sure the audio is not subject to any copyright

    I have a web site so I just uploaded the audio clip to it and then put the link to the mp3 file in my email message. I should have thought of it before. Looks like I can mark this solved.
